Does it Matter?

Sunday 24 June 2018, by Faiz Ahmed Faiz

My tablet and my pen,

My two cherished treasures

Are snatched from me,

But does it matter?

For I have dipped my fingers

In the blood of my heart;

My tongue they sealed

But does it mater? For,

I have placed a tongue

In every link of chain 

That fetters me.
